    What do you think?
    The base model V6 is only $25k and gets 305HP.

    TOo impractical?

    Sweet car, go for it! ;)

    I'd take the V6. Better on gas and still gets 305HP.

    If you're going to buy a car like that I'd say go big or go home. The Camaro is one of the oldest names around. A V6 wouldn't do it justice.

    Yeah, I guess there isn't really a fine line between a sports car and mileage. :p

    One side or the other. :eek:

    Really, Camaro's and Mustangs have had 6 cylinder models since the early days. Both currently have more powerful v6's then their prior v8 counterparts of the early 90's and prior.

    Think people get too caught up on cylinder count, though more pistons more torque.

    And 1967 isnt the oldest name around, the Mustang has 2 years on it. I know you said one of the oldest. To someone off ill throw in the fact that the Nissan Skyline line dates back to 1957 lol.

    Still, I'd rather spend the extra $7K or so and get the 1ss model rather than regret not getting a V8 later on.

    Yeah, you get a car like that and people will definitely want to race you at the lights, wouldn't want to embarrass yourself and lose now would you? ;)

    Well if it was me then I would literally smoke them, with my I6. ;) But I'm sure some of those neons and civics could take the V6 Camaro.

    I wouldnt count on most tuned neons. I hesitated to mention civic, i used to be in the scene and I know of a few cars first hand that probably would out perform the v6 camaro in straight line acceleration no problem.

    Im talking your generic idiots mostly, you know me before i had the money for parts lol :p
